“If you openly support BDS in Florida, you’re dead, politically.”

That was Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s conclusion from the surprisingly large role the issue of the antisemitic “boycott, divestment and sanctions” (BDS) campaign against Israel played in his close race against Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum in Floridan’s gubernatorial election last November.

DeSantis edged out the hardcore progressive Democrat by a mere 0.4 percent, or 32,000 votes.

DeSantis made the remark during the course of his official visit to Israel last week. He led a massive trade mission of Florida business leaders, cabinet secretaries, and university presidents on a five-day trip to the Jewish state. During the course of the mission, Florida universities signed collaboration agreements with Israeli universities spanning a vast spectrum of undertakings from water purification to space research.

The mission merged the twin goals of increasing Florida-Israel economic, academic and commercial ties; and fighting anti-Semitism generally, and the BDS campaign against Israel specifically. Its success was a stunning expression of DeSantis’s state government’s friendship with Israel. It also placed the sharp contrast between progressive Democrats — like his opponent, Gillum — and DeSantis in stark relief. Read the rest HERE.

Nazi collaborator George Soros, who described his work confiscating property from the Jews as “the happiest days of my life,” is a hero of the antisemitic left. And now he doesn’t target only Israel, funding “Palestinianism,” the boycott of Israel, and anti-Israel groups. He is on a quest for the destruction of America and individual freedom. Not only a Nazi collaborator, but also a woman-beater, George Soros has financed election rigging, the hijrah into Europe, Antifa, quislings in the EU, open borders, mass migration, anti-Americanism, funding jihad murderers’ legal expenses, anti-Trump groups, violent Berkeley rioters, et al — every evil group and cause has some element of Soros funding.

Behind every dark, ugly global scheme, he lurks — like Dracula — waiting to pounce on the good, the decent and the free. Read the rest of this article at gellerreport.com.
